EOP collaborating with Studio Gang on the CentrePointe development

Rick Ekhoff commented at July's public meeting, "EOP Architects is overwhelmed at being selected" as one of five Kentucky architecture firms to work with Studio Gang on the CentrePointe development project. (Rendering by Studio Gang.)

"This is one of the most significant things to happen in downtown in a long time, and we're happy to be a part of it," he said.

Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, whose firm came up with the design, announced the Kentucky firms that will participate in the project. Gang unveiled a plan including a 30-story tower to include a hotel, apartments and condominiums; an eight-story office building; a pedestrian passway through the block; and several small buildings, including five that would face Main Street. The taller building is made up of a bundle of tubes of different heights, arranged to allow sunshine and air to flow between them. Roof gardens would top several of the tubes.
